Whoa! Dont get me started. I totaly understand where youre comming from. I managed 5 Starbucks in a matter of 9 years in Las Vegas. I watched as the company slooooooowy took over the market (coffee) in the Vegas area and most of the world. The worst thing wasnt ever the company itself, it was dealing with highly anal coorporate wannabees trying to impress and make the quick 'buck' in glitsy Las Vegas. They would wobble in EVERY freakin' morning, then around 11am, then aroung 3pm, then again at 6pm, always wearing there big 'i'm better than you' shades, fake one sided cheak grin and occasional sarcastic (vomit) words of 'there own' wisdom' that does you no good.
Despite all the crap and assholes I had to endure and make 'happy' every single day cause they were uncapable of self pleasures, I still hung on for almost 10 years and collected my FREE stock the company vested fully for me with no money outta my pocket. I collected, I cashed and I spent.
As for your question......hell no. It's almost as bad as the wasted space Americans (that's us), use on golf coarses aroound the country. It's all a shithole. LOL Seriously, I believe Starbucks and all the rest need to simmer down out of the fast life and remind people of the simple pleasures from home. The way it has always been (before 1992 ofcaorse,........even though Starbucks was discovered, bought and brought to life in the 1970's). So, yeah, I would say...IT ISNT REALLY THAT IMPORTANT. Get rid of them. CHEERS! :)
